Benefits of Living in Pennsylvania

When you hear the word "Utah," chances are you think of mountains, but not only does Utah offer stunning mountain ranges and its namesake, the Great Salt Lake, the western portion of the state also features desert land.

If you are lucky enough to move to Utah, there are many aspects of this great state that you will enjoy.

You Can Be Close To Home While Still

Experiencing a New Culture

Luckily for New Yorkers who want a taste of something different without venturing too far from home, Pennsylvania provides a pleasantly familiar middle ground while still retaining its own distinct culture. If you choose to move to Pennsylvania, you can rest easy knowing that you have a wide and varied state to explore at home while New York is only a few hours away. This makes road trips or quick flights to New York straightforward and simple while giving you the space you need to experience something different.

Explore the

Thriving Economic Scene

If you’re interested in moving to Pennsylvania for the job opportunities, your line of work may have an impact on which part of the state you ultimately choose to move to. Some of Pennsylvania’s top industries that you could research as a work possibility include:

  • Mining
  • Manufacturing
  • Agriculture
  • Telecommunications
  • Pharmaceuticals

A Similar Climate To New York’s

If climate is not your primary reason for moving away from New York, you may be pleasantly surprised by the everyday weather in Pennsylvania. The mid-Atlantic state typically experiences four seasons with chilly and often snowy winters, as well as warm and often humid summers. Additionally, due to Pennsylvania’s geographical proximity to New York, you can expect to see similarly vibrant and colorful fall foliage. Be aware, however, that average snowfall varies depending on which part of the state you reside in, with the northern and western areas typically seeing higher rates of snowfall each winter than the rest of the state.

Spend Your Weekends Exploring

Historical Sites and Landmarks

Pennsylvania played an important role in the United States’ early history, and that history is still visible throughout the state today. If you enjoy learning about past events, you might love living in Pennsylvania! In this state, you could comfortably spend your evenings or weekends exploring the countless local landmarks and other sites of historical significance. If you decide to move over to Pennsylvania, make sure you visit the following historically meaningful sites after you’ve settled into your home.

  • The Liberty Bell
  • Hershey Park
  • The Gettysburg battlefield
  • Pennsylvania Dutch country
  • Independence National Park
  • The Betsy Ross house

Enjoy a

New York Lifestyle Without the Price Tag

Love Pennsylvania but don’t want to give up your New York City lifestyle? You can rest assured that Pennsylvania’s world-class big cities can rival many in the country. Just like New York, Pennsylvania has both major cities and rural areas, but in Pennsylvania, the cities tend to come with a lower price tag. For instance, you could perhaps comfortably live in the Philadelphia or Pittsburgh areas and:

  • Spend less money on transportation and other recurring expenses such as groceries
  • Purchase a home for a lower cost than in New York
  • Enjoy urban and rural areas without having to strain your wallet as much as you might back in New York

Experience Unique Local Delicacies

You may already be well versed in New York specialties such as pastrami sandwiches, hot dogs, bagels or cheesecake, but did you know that Pennsylvania has a distinct culinary heritage as well? The Keystone State absorbed the food influences of all those who settled there over the years, and today you’ll find a wide range of delicacies on the menu. For instance, chocolate lovers are sure to be thrilled about visiting Hershey, Pennsylvania and touring the original site of the beloved chocolate brand. As you travel throughout the state, be sure to add hoagies, scrapple breakfast meat, pierogies and soft pretzels to your must-try list. Of course, for those with a heftier appetite, only an authentic Philly cheesesteak will do.

Take Advantage of

Strong Educational Opportunities

Whether you have adolescent children or are interested in going back to school yourself, Pennsylvania has some top-of-the-line higher educational opportunities on offer. This state is home to some of the oldest and most prestigious institutions of learning in the United States, many of which are today public universities and could offer discounted tuition to in-state residents. Some of the local colleges you could take advantage of if you become a resident include:

  • University of Pennsylvania
  • Pennsylvania State University
  • Swarthmore College
  • Carnegie Mellon University
  • Haverford College

Relocating your home from New York to Pennsylvania could be a smoother adjustment than you might think. While the two mid-Atlantic states share a number of key traits, Pennsylvania’s rich history and heritage give it a distinct brand all its own. Whether you’re interested in taking advantage of Pennsylvania’s top-notch higher education, trying out some of the local specialties, enjoying a temperate four-season climate similar to New York’s or exploring the growing economic scene, Pennsylvania could be a good fit for your needs.
